  1. Preheat oven to 450F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easier cleanup.
  2. Add the carrots to the baking sheet, evenly drizzle with olive oil, and evenly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Use your hands to evenly toss the olive oil.
  3. Arrange the carrots in a flat layer and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until carrots are lightly caramelized. Stir and flip halfway through baking so that all sides cook evenly.
